Highest Grossing Films
In 2010, Nas was cast as LONNIE FARTHAW in The Show (starring Jay-Z and Eminem), which grossed an estimated $7 million at the box office. However, that film was received so poorly that it went straight to DVD. In 2013, Nas was cast as himself in The Cobbler starring Adam Sandler and Dustin Hoffman; that film grossed about $4 million. So far his highest-grossing film is probably a tie between 2001’s Down to Earth (which also starred Chris Rock) and 2002’s 8 Mile (which also starred Eminem). Both of those films brought in approximately $56 million each.
Business Ventures and Endorsements
Nas has started and part-owned a number of businesses, such as Hennessy’s New York Barbershop chain. He also designed sneakers for Reebok called The Cobbler, which retailed for $120. He’s endorsed Michael Jordan’s Nike line, Diddy’s Ciroc vodka, Sprite and Gillette. In 2016 Nas teamed up with DJI to produce a drone called Mavic Air.
